A night out with the girls

4 Nov

Last night, I spent the evening at the America Eats Tavern with 40+ alumni from my high school. It was nice to see some familiar faces (like Jessica and Kristyn who I see quite regularly) and meet some of the other alumni. The three of us did get split up among the tables so it forced us to be social with other people 🙂

The restaurant is located near Gallery Place and is where Cafe Atlantico use to be.  One of the owners is a fellow alumnus and was nice enough to have us all for dinner. The restaurant opened July 4th 2011 and plans to stay opened until this coming summer. America Eats focuses on American classics  and some long forgotten dishes, from burgoo to oysters Rockefeller. Some of the recipes even come from the National Archives! We enjoyed the hush puppies, buffalo wings, shrimp and pork jambalya, vermicelli and a delicious key lime pie.
